    I think maybe it's a bad ground. Don't have time until next week or late sunday to test that theory tho.

    Nice trucks !!
    Are the axles interchangeable from an early CJ5 to an early FC or vice versa ? .... or any year for that matter ?
    And are the original wheels the same style from an early FC to a early CJ5 ?
    Thanks

    The wheels have the same, 5.5x5 pattern.
    The axles are not interchangeable between the fc and cj.

    On a Narrow track 150 they should interchange with a CJ-5.

    So, the issue with the brown one running (not turning over) turned out to be a bad positive cable connection on the battery. Old crappy universal battery terminal connector and corroded wire. I wire wheeled the terminal, cut the wire down to good copper again and then screwed everything back together. Runs pretty good again. So I got that goin for me.

    GF hopped in it and drove it out of the back yard and parked it on the street last weekend when I was re-arranging the yard. I think she liked it, but she's still not convinced it should live with us permanently... And, I'm not convinced it's a keeper yet either. It has its upsides and its downsides, but if someone were to make me a good offer, I'd probably send it down the road. Not actively pedaling it yet... Part of me wants to dial it in a little further and get it really road worthy, but I also have way more projects than I need including 3 more FC's, and the money tied up in this one could go to other things. Decisions, decisions.
